The Hopeless Romantic is an queer romance podcast hosted by Austin Chant and Amanda Jean. Episode two discusses National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which challenges authors to write 50,000 words in a month. Austin, a multi-year Nano winner, covers strategies best suited for Nano, while Amanda covers the structural conventions of 50,000-word romance novels.
Also, the hosts dissect using sex scenes as shorthand, and classify romance as a bad boy on a Vespa scooter.
The next episode will feature THR's first guest, author Sam Schooler, who will join Austin and Amanda in a discussion of trans romance.
